    Opinions on Sennheiser IE 7's?

    Hi guys, I'm looking at a set of IEMs to replace the stock IEMs on a Sony S639.

    DAP For Sound Quality - Sony S639 or A829 or..?

    Hi all, I’ve decided that it’s finally time to be dragged kicking and screaming into the year 2001 (), and to replace my old Panasonic RQ-SX15 cassette player with a DAP. I'm not interested in games, video playback, etc (only possibly an FM tuner), so my primary concerns are of audio quality...
